Favorites of the Moment

Since nothing exciting is going on over here, I thought I’d share some of my latest favorite things (Apparently I think I’m like Oprah.  Or relevant).  My life is so exciting, you guys.

Did you guys know Burts Bees is made in Durham?  Yeah, me either.  Neither?  Anyway, I was at Rite Aid the other day picking up crap I don’t need when I stumbled upon an entire WALL of the stuff.  Where I’m from, there are a few things here and there, but I’ve always chalked them up to chapstick and ignored them because we all know that I’m addicted to crack Aquaphor and pretend that no other lip therapy exists in the world.  Anyway, this has nothing to do with lip balm, and I have gotten way off track.

When I stumbled upon their massive display, I tried out their Thoroughly Thereputic Honey and Grapeseed Hand Creme and fell in love.  I feel like I’ve been missing out on this shit my entire life and now have to make up for it by slathering my hands in the stuff a gajillion times a day.   Why didn’t someone tell me about it sooner?!   It smells like honey (bees, get it?) and is yummy (no, I didn’t eat it – it just smells yummy).

So basically, for $10, you too can be happy and smell yummy.

Speaking of things that smell good.  My new perfume to buy is…….Blvgari Omnia Crystalline.  Who do I think I am?  Angelina Jolie?  I have no business buying anything Blvgari, but it was in my most recent Birchbox and ZOMG, heaven.  It makes me want to put on a pretty dress, high heels, and go on a date night requiring some effort with my husband it’s so good.

Seriously, I don’t even know if I could figure out how to open the bottle it’s so fancy.

Another thing that’s fancy?  Trout Pout by Butter London!  This is my most wanted color for the summer.

Look what we stumbled upon recently:

LUSH!  Yep, that’s right!  Even us folks down here in the county are privy to a luxury such as Lush, and thank god for that, because I love them.  Have you been?  Have you been?  Have you beeeeeen?!  It will change your life, I promise.  Handmade soaps and bubble baths will rock your face off.  Promise me you’ll go, okay?

One of the best parts of my day is getting home and vegging on the couch with Chris after dinner.  Since we basically don’t watch any live TV and rely on our DVR for LIFE (god forbid we lose our shows, we’d be lost forever), we record everything and watch it the next day (or week).  What have we been obsessing over lately?  This guy:

Do you guys watch Jimmy Fallon?  He’s on at 12:30 after Leno on NBC and we LOVE him.  When he left SNL, I was devastated, because that meant no more of this.   Or this.  Or this.  Whomp, whomp.  Anyway, late night TV to the rescue, we love his show and laugh every time we watch.  Between him still breaking scene with laughter, ad libbing and playing games with guests and late night tweets, it has to be the best late night show out there.  I recommend you watch it, because you won’t regret the decision.

So, those are my favorites of the moment.  To sum up, I’m a bath junkie who likes manicures and who also happens to like Jimmy Fallon.  You’re welcome.
